5:03 am
donald trump jr. says was presented to him as the reason for this meeting. and included in the meeting were jared kushner and paul manafort who later became the chair of the campaign. the question is, were they seeking information? were they aware information was coming from the russian government, if at all, as you just heard, she says no. they didn't know anything about it. donald trump jr. says at the beginning. but now a new "new york times" report says an e-mail was received by him before this meeting saying that there was information from the russian government that could help their campaign. donald trump jr. has hired a criminal attorney who says that, yes, trump thought that there was information that could help the campaign. that's why he met with her. but that they never made any promises to use any information or to either consider it credible. the senate intelligence committee wants to know more. they want to hear from him.

in 2017 you would see an increase to the bill of roughly $4.34. the following year in 2018 the bill would increase by $4.63. so why are they doing the increase now, and exactly what will it be used for? i was able to find out it would be used to offset revenue lost during the drought when the average household was using 50 gallons less of water per day. the money from the water rate increases would be used to improve east bay mud infrastructure ranging from pipelines to facilities around the east bay. the public will get a chance to weigh in on the proposed increases during a public hearing today in oakland. if the board of directors moves forward with the rate hikes, they would kick in as early as tomorrow. live in walnut creek, pete suratos for "today in the bay.." new this morning, the chp says one driver is being investigated for possibly driving under the influence after a three-car crash in the east bay happened after midnight in hayward.
